  3. The hydromatic should have not been an option in the '60s at all. Chevrolet pretty much relied on the powerglide for an automatic until they started to ues the turbohydro.

    The absolute best way to determin what the truck originally came with is to find a site that has the codes to decypher a vin number. You can look at the vin tag and tell everything from the color to the hub caps it came with. You may look under the seat or in the seat abck sometimes you can find the build sheet if it isn't rotted completely away and get information off of it.

    I got inspired by the candy and lace thread. You don't see that much if at all in Ok so I figured I would be different.

    Damn... after 5 years I finally got new floors in the driver's side and passenger side foot wells of the Suburban... holy crap, it's quieter and getting into a truck that has real, solid floors instead of thin sheetmetal tack welded over a huge hole is really a strange feeling!

    zipp: my friend was a mechanic. when we were young his dad owned a gas station in detroit. i was interested in the trans out of his 58 after he rolled it and inquired. he said it was a 4sp auto with a torque tube. i assumed it was original as was the rest of the truck. that's all i know....

    This is a picture thread, not a tech discussion, but I'll break protocol. Someone wrote earlier about autos being available in '58, they are usually in V8 equipped trucks. Your Wikipedia article actually states the same, your not reading it thoroughly. My truck had a 6 originally and is a small hump trans cover, and column shift 2 spd (power glide) 6 cyl usually were standard trans. The first 4 spd auto truck (stock) I have seen is in a GMC, this trans is very different from a modern turbo hydro-matic, which arrived in trucks in 1967. Google the trans history and truck history if you need more info.

    Here's some truck pictures (not mine) to stay legit to this thread.

    The guy that owns this truck lives here in the High Desert. It looks much better than the pictures show.

    Well, this weekend I found out it is a 63-65 Vette hi=perf. solid lifter 327 motor. Wont be needing brakes , but brake hoses. This thing has a solid frame driveline. I'm stoked. has 382 heads , and we are going to measure the lift on the cam to see if this guy knew what he was doing. Has some push rod guides on it, you could eat off the insides.:D

    Quick question for all the guys in-the-know with these trucks.

    I'm currently talking to a guy about trading an OT pickup for his '66. It's got a 4-speed, 'farmer' bumper and 6-lug wheels, this would be a 3/4 ton correct?
